According to the Light My Fire Songfacts, this was the last song Jim Morrison performed live. It was a show at The Warehouse in New Orleans.
A live version was released in 1983 on their album Alive, She Cried, the first of several live or compilation albums released in subsequent decades to include the song.
The song is #35 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was also included in the Songs of the Century list and was ranked number 7 in VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of All Time list.
José Feliciano’s cover version won a 1969 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, the same year he won another Grammy for Best New Artist.
